Investor Centre

Welcome to IFIC’s Investor Centre.

Just as investing is a life-long process, understanding investments is a long-term endeavour. We believe the best way to increase your knowledge is to learn about one topic at a time.

The IFIC Investor Centre provides information on a wide range of topics. As the trade association for the Canadian mutual funds industry, our focus is on mutual funds, but we are also providing lots of general information to help you build your knowledge.

Our Investor Centre offers something for everyone, from those just getting started to those who want to build on their knowledge and experience.

We hope you will find information that helps you in your journey to build a secure financial future and achieve your life goals.

If you would like to suggest additional topics or make a comment, please email Sara Clodman at sclodman@ific.ca.
